Lutein for healthy eyes and beautiful skin
Studies have shown that lutein is critical to eye health and vision maintenance. Lutein protects the macula, is good for the eyesight and supports the aging eye.
Lutein also promotes beauty from the inside by increasing the elasticity of the skin and increasing its moisture content.
Research shows, that lutein - in conjunction with zeaxanthin - reduces the intensity of blue light by as much as 90% in the retina, which could significantly reduce oxidative damage.
Lutein is a carotenoid that is naturally found in fruits and green leafy vegetables such as Spinach, broccoli, corn and egg yolk occur. Since our body cannot produce lutein itself, we have to take it in with food.
Lutein acts as an antioxidant and reduces the damaging effects of free radicals on our body cells and organs.
FloraGlo Lutein, as contained in Lutein Royal, is the world's leading lutein. It is obtained from the petals of the marigold flower using a patented manufacturing process, in which the lutein pigments are extracted and brought into a crystalline form.
FloraGlo Lutein is exactly the same as natural lutein, which e.g. is contained in green leafy vegetables or other plants.
Lutein Royal is tested for pesticides, heavy metals and other contaminants to meet its high standard. Lutein Royal does not contain any allergens (e.g. milk components, egg, fish, crustaceans, nuts, seeds, soybeans, cereal components), is GMO-free and BSE-free.
It is manufactured under GMP conditions and has a GRAS standard in the USA. Lutein Royal is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and diabetics.
FloraGlo Lutein has been used to do far more studies in humans than with lutein ester. This repeatedly confirmed its safety and effectiveness. That is why most ophthalmologists recommend products that contain FloraGlo Lutein.
FloraGlo Lutein has been used in many vitamin products and other nutritional supplements without side effects since mid-1990.
A large part of the ingested lutein is stored in the eye tissue, especially in the cornea, the macula and in the lenses.
Research shows that a high lutein content can protect the eyes from the damaging UV rays of sunlight. It acts like a filter against short-wave blue light and increases the pigment density of the macula, which is the point of sharpest vision on the retina.
With lutein deficiency, the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or clouding of the lenses (cataracts) increases. Studies have also observed that lutein improves the visual function of people who already have AMD.
Lutein is not only important for the eyes. Research shows that Lutein Royal also has many skin benefits due to its antioxidant properties.
Ultraviolet light, air pollution and other factors can damage our skin. Light has the ability to penetrate into the lower layers of the skin through its short-wave UVB rays and long-wave UVA rays.
If the skin's natural antioxidant defense is not intact, the free radicals can cause great damage and lead to premature skin aging. Lutein molecules are naturally embedded in the entire skin and have the task of counteracting the formation of free radicals.
A clinical study presented at the 'Beyond Beauty Paris' conference in France clearly shows that lutein makes the skin more elastic and beautiful.
Pierfrancesco Morganti, professor at the University of Naples in Applied Cosmetic Dermatology, documented that lutein and its related molecule zeaxanthin in a daily dose of 10 mg lutein increase skin moisture by 38%, skin elasticity by 8% and the natural fat content of the skin associated with the Age decreases, increased by 33%. At the same time, the oxidation (rancidity) of these important fatty acids, which are so important for the beauty of the skin, decreased by 55%.
The patented FloraGLO® Lutein, as it is contained in Lutein Royal, is called 'free lutein'. It is the biologically active molecule.
In contrast, inexpensive lutein ester differs chemically from free lutein and requires an enzymatic conversion in the small intestine so that the lutein it contains can be absorbed into the body.
The rate of conversion from lutein ester to free lutein depends on many factors e.g. a person's state of health, diet and age. Basically, the rate of conversion in the body can't be determined with certainty.
No conversion is necessary for the absorption of Lutein Royal, it is directly and completely absorbed by the body. With Lutein Royal you therefore take in the amount of lutein that is stated on the label. So there is no guesswork.
Yes. Lutein Royal has been used in many vitamins and nutritional supplements since the mid-1990s, with no negative indications regarding its safety.
Lutein has been assessed by the JECFA (FAO/WHO Joint Committee on Food Additives), an independent, international body recognized around the world for controlling the safety of food additives. The JECFA set a maximum daily dose of 2 mg lutein per kilogram, which corresponds to around 140 mg lutein per day for a person weighing 70 kg.
Lutein Royal's safety was also assessed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which found that Lutein Royal is safe for a variety of uses in conventional and medical foods.
With an expert panel from the field of food safety, the FDA carried out its own assessment of the GRAS findings (Generally Recognized As Safe), based on data from the areas of toxicology, genotoxicity and human safety.
The best time to take Lutein Royal capsules is during a meal. Lutein is fat-soluble and is therefore better absorbed if it is taken with a small amount of fat.
Take 1 capsule Lutein Royal daily with a meal. Lutein is fat soluble and is best absorbed by the body if taken with a small amount of fat, which is usually present in every meal.
Each capsule contains:
Natural Lutein from the Marigold flower (FloraGLO® from Kemin Industries, Inc.), Plant cellulose (capsule)
Guaranteed pure and free from additives:
